Ragged Island Airport & Road Rehabilitation
Location: Ragged Island, Bahamas
Services: Civil Engineering, Project Management, Construction Quality Control
As part of its efforts to improve infrastructure across the country, the Government of The Bahamas engaged IBS to create designs to rehabilitate the runway and the apron at the Duncan Town Airport and oversee the construction of rehabilitated roads in Ragged Island, Bahamas. Given that the project was partially funded by the European Union, an extra level of scrutiny and controls was imposed on the design and site teams. Our civil infrastructure design services included paving, grading and drainage. IBS provided contract administration services, representing the Government of The Bahamas during the construction phase of the project, and also provided construction quality control services throughout the installation of the works.
